|Memories of VideoDisc - Who's Who in VideoDisc|
Mr. Halter has been on the VideoDisc project since the late 1960s. His principal contribution to the program has been the development of electromechanical cutting heads capable of operating at frequencies in the video band. During the early 1970s, when RCA's major video disc effort was directed at electron beam recording, he was essentially a one-man development team on high-frequency cutterheads. His work led to the development of a recording method that was more reliable, easier to operate and gave a better signal-to-noise ratio in finished discs than electron beam recording. Our present disc recording system is an outgrowth of his work. He has four patents, all used in the introductory system.
